Mark Richey Woodworking earns national MBE certification

Mark Richey Woodworking and its WallGoldfinger Furniture division have expanded its role from a regionally certified Minority- and Women-Owned Business Enterprise (M/WBE) to a nationally certified Minority Business Enterprise (MBE) to benefit more projects across the country.

The company was certified in June by the Greater New England Minority Supplier Development Council. The certification means the company has met the National Minority Supplier Development Council criteria for MBEs.

This new national MBE certification, and M/WBE certifications in Massachusetts and New York City, recognize company majority owner Teresa Richey, of Peru (pictured above).


Mark Richey Woodworking recently had the privilege of working with John Moriarty & Associates and Stantec on renovations to The Hub on Causeway inside the TD Garden sports arena. The project included a locker lounge (shown above), trophy display counters and cases, including for Stanley Cups, a boardroom mimicking the look of a rink, banquettes, a pantry, executive restrooms and more. Materials trended toward solid surfacing, stone, painted surfaces, laminate and metal in mostly whites and blacks. Another project, locker rooms, is now underway with Gilbane at the same location.


WallGoldfinger Furniture makes boardroom tables and much more for client’s around the country. For this recent table for a New York client, rift cut white oak veneer with vacu-formed edges and a subtle silver metallic back-painted glass make this otherwise straightforward table a standout. The one-of-a-kind design is by Ballinger of Philadelphia. Under the table are pedestal bases in matching veneer. Bases accommodate wire management and tabletop hatch lids are made from matching glass.
